Sarawak Anthem through the years

Fairland Sarawak (up to 1973)

Fair Land Sarawak
We will never cease to honour thee
and with our loyal sons
Defend your liberty

From your high forest hills,
Down to the open sea
May freedom ever reign
Men Live in Unity

Proudly our Flag flies high
above our Country Strong and Free
Long may our Peoples live
in Peace and harmony

Sarawak Bahagia (1973-1988)

Sarawak negeriku berdaulat merdeka
Rakyatnya hidup teguh bersatu padu
Semua berazam terus berkhidmat pada negara
Sentiasa maju pertiwi
Bahagialah tanahairku
Sarawak negeri yang ku cinta ku puja
Untuk me ku rela korban jiwa raga
Abadilah Sarawak ya tuhan dalam Malaysia!

Ibu Pertiwiku (1988 onwards)

Sarawak Tanah Air Ku
Negeri Ku Tanah Air Ku Sarawak
Engkaulah Tanah Pusaka Ku
Tanah Tumpah Darah Ku
Ibu Pertiwi Ku
Rakyat Hidup Mesra dan Bahagia
Damai Muhibbah Sentiasa
Bersatu Berusaha Berbakti
Untuk Sarawak Ku Cintai

Sarawak Dalam Malaysia
Aman Makmur Rahmat Tuhan Maha Esa
Kekallah Sarawak Bertuah
Teras Perjuangan Rakyat
Berjaya Berdaulat

Biarku Menjadi Lilin (Let me be a candle)

I would like to share a song which was popular in the late 1980's when I was still a student.

Bamboo - an indispensable grass for all seasons

During the last few weeks, the garbage bins in my neighbourhood have been toppled by a few stray dogs looking for food among the garbages. As a result garbages were strewn all over the places.

But lo and behold! Today, someone resourceful has come up with a solution to deter the dogs from toppling the bins using bamboo poles. Ingenious, isn't it?

Bamboos belong to the grass family but is placed in a separate family due to the presence of woody culms or stems. It finds its usefulness in lots of situations - from "pansuh" to building material and as conduit for water.
